6:32 pm
games of a best-of-five series. pitcher matt cain will start on the mound tonight. these teams have faced each other 7 times this season with the reds winning four of the games. giants fans are confident that san francisco will win and are hoping for a repeat of 2010 when they went all the way. >> giants fans, play-offs had to come. >> matt cain on the mound it will be a good series start. >> reporter: fans didn't have a hard time getting into the ballpark despite the events happening in the city this weekend. buses and muni trains, however, were packed. most people i talked to took bart. some of them saying they had trouble finding parking at bart stations because so many were using that mode of transportation. but really, what a great night for a ballgame. and there's so much happening in the city that when people were in line they got a chance to see some of the blue angels fly over, as well. a lot of excitement. people still going inside and

6:37 pm
the fire and police departments and the red cross and public transit. >> there's no known threat against the city or any of the events this weekend. but those are things that, as public safety officials, we have it take that type of thing -- we have to take that type of thing into account. >> they set up a mobile command center to monitor radio traffic and news and a call center is set up for emergency response. so if there was a weekend when we needed good weather it was this one and we got it. roberta gonzales joins us. it was beautiful. >> the weather is vitally important for the pilots. the blue angels, right, because we have have a ceiling that is seamless for the most part. we had a deck yesterday about 1,000 feet and we were hoping we did not have to scrap any blue angels plans as far as flying is concerned and what happened? we cleared out nicely today. in fact, let's take a look at some of those high temperatures across the bay area. right now 59 in pacifica. 71 fairfield. upper 60s in san jose after a high today of 71 degrees. fleet week continues on sunday

6:49 pm
watching the clock tick on by. you see the cloud deck build back up again as that area of low pressure gets closer and closer to the bay area. so we will wake up on the gray side tomorrow especially coastside and bayside but then it clears out and we'll have a westerly wind 10 to 20. more of an onshore push so we have it bring down the temperatures but what does that mean for tomorrow's rock and roll half marathon? 40- to 50,000 people expected to pound the pavement in downtown san jose. 59 degrees at 8 a.m. for that stamp meanwhile your forecast, we're talking 50s at the beaches, 60s around the peninsula, 60s and 70s common around the santa clara valley back in through morgan hill. east of the bay 75 degrees the outside number. north of the bay napa low 70s. 72 degrees in novato. upper 50s in bodega bay. the extended forecast, we have a chance of a shower on monday and tuesday. and then cloud cover on wednesday. and then we'll see more seasonal conditions by the end of the workweek. s by the end
